5/6/12 – Rick Genest
Rick Genest has posted another image on his face Book page and the performer’s gesture exposes the tattoo’s along his neck, shoulders and arms, The chains replicate the shape of a rip cage, which also creates an interesting composition with Genest’s tattoo’s. One could argue that the corset glamourises death, although the low camera angle emphasises Genest’s chest instead of his facial features.
